I LOVE LOVE LOVE sequels. Why? You get to get closer to the characters you fell in love with in the first book or previous few. You get to know the world better. You get to deeper into the plot and characters' lives. Overall, it's great journey whether it's a second or last in a series.
I will be so sad to see Melissa Marr's series end. I've already heard from people who've read DARKEST MERCY that they've cried. A lot. But it will be SO worth it. Can't wait!
Not to mention that whatever the 3rd book in the Caster Chronicles will be called will be ridiculously good and unexpected! These books always seem to throw me off and give me totally surprising and stunning. Can't wait for this continuation.
I once heard Sarah Rees Brennan say that 2nd books in a trilogy are called makeout books so you can imagine I am STOKED for CLOCKWORK PRINCE. Bring on the smoochies!
Here's some more titles I am willing to go ninja on you for...I mean books I can't wait for!
What are you excited for??(clicky link for tons of great books coming in 2011)
